    Crazy Cowboy Custom Leather

    Christian Rubio, owner of Crazy Cowboy Custom Leather, was born in Cocula, Jalisco Mexico, which is also known as "La Cuna Del Mariachi," or "The Cradle of Mariachi," given that mariachi music originated there in the 19th century. Living in California, Crazy Cowboy Custom Leather is a small business Christian founded out of inspiration and teachings from watching Tandy Leather videos on YouTube. “I believe that the best way to learn about chiseling and finishing is by watching Tandy Leather videos. That is how I learned many of my skills. I strive to improve everyday to ensure I can offer a good product to my clients.”
